Use your current scale!
Outlaw has developed a plug-and-play solution that directly connects your existing* scale to the OG application. When you purchase the OG Scale System you will get a touchscreen display, monitor stand, a USB RFiD scanner, and the cables necessary to integrate with your scale. The RFiD scanner allows the METRC plant tag to be scanned in a matter of one or two seconds, as opposed to manually typing or writing the METRC plant ID. The direct USB link to the scale also captures the exact weight instantaneously instead of manually recording the weight on the scale's display. Both of these features save significant amounts of time and also eliminate human error in typing or writing data (or reading hand-written data).
This system eliminates several key challenges:

The Desperado Handheld System is a portable, battery powered, RFiD scanner capable of reading METRC plant tags from 15+ feet away. Our software will gather location (room)/plant data from METRC (once you provide us with your API key). With this data the app can provide a list of every plant in a location, according to METRC, and you can validate this by scanning that location with the RFiD scanner. The app will report any missing/extra plants or (hopefully) that all plants are accounted for with no extras. This validation feature has been shown to reduce internal audit time from hours to minutes. All of this data (and data from other features) can be uploaded to the cloud based web console for review, revision, saving, or uploading to METRC. The Desperado also offers many other useful features:
Utilizing the OG Scale system from Outlaw Technology has saved over 30 seconds per plant in harvest, we have eliminated the need for manual data capture.

By automating the data capture, we are now able to review and ensure an accurate harvest prior to METRC upload. What took us hours of manual entry of each plant into the Maryland Seed-to-Sale system is updated in seconds.

The Desperado Handheld has proven an excellent resource to the ForwardGro Inventory Process. The ability to complete the inventory, sort out the deltas, and upload the report for Regulatory Compliance is invaluable and provides a great amount of confidence for Regulatory Audits.
ForwardGro's greenhouse has the ability to harvest a substantial number of plants in a given cycle. The OG Scale system has allowed our team to complete these high volume harvests with just two scales in one day's work. Streamlining our Harvest process with minimal to no human entry has cut down on errors in Metrc and increased our productivity.
